The conventions have ended. One convention told us how terrible they believe freedom and liberty are, while the other convention told us that the greatness freedom and liberty produced is wonderful, but there is even more to come. One convention told us that mob rule and total government control is the best way to move forward, while the other convention said that law and order and limited government will produce peace and prosperity. One convention told us that the evil of collectivism is the right course for the United States while the other convention told us the course of individualism with individual responsibility and achievement is the best course.
If the course of collectivism is chosen by the American people our future will be a future with more and more government control over the economy and the individual will be told how they are to live their lives and how they are to think. The result of this course is known. We saw the results in the Soviet Union and their satellites. We are seeing the result in Cuba and Venezuela.
If the course of individualism is chosen by the American people, our future is unknown. When the individual is allowed to and encouraged to dream and achieve, the future is unknown but exciting. It is the individual and not government who expands the known limits and asks why we should settle for the already discovered. It is this desire to learn and to explore that has taken the United States from East of the Appalachian Mountains to the Pacific Coast, from upstart to world power, and from earth to the moon and beyond.
The choice of collectivism is a choice that centers on power and control, power and control for dominance within the government and power and control over the lives and thoughts of the people by demanding conformity and indoctrination.
The choice of individualism is a choice that centers on government being only as a servant, serving the people as a protector of their God given Natural Rights and liberties, protector of order and civility, and protector of the borders of the nation. The individual is educated, is encouraged to dream outside the known limits, and is encouraged to live their dream and create.
The choice of collectivism is a choice that destroys and enslaves.
The choice of individualism is a choice of freedom, challenge, responsibility, adventure, and surprises.
